WENDY TUCKERMAN: NSW digital driver licence goes live statewide

Official Media Release from the Office of Wendy Tuckerman
Monday, 4 November 2019

NSW drivers can now go wallet less and use a Digital Driver Licence on their smartphone for proof of identity and proof of age for pubs and clubs, and for roadside police checks, with the technology officially going live.

Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman MP encouraged drivers in the Goulburn Electorate to download the DDL and give it a go.

“Smartphones have become de facto wallets and we’re using world leading technology so that drivers can use digital licences in everyday scenarios,” Mrs Tuckerman said.

“The DDL is hosted securely on the new Service NSW app, locks with a PIN and can be accessed offline. It will provide additional levels of security and protection against identity fraud, compared to the plastic driver licence.

“The NSW Government is working closely with other sectors to have them come on board and accept the DDL. This includes nightclubs, restaurants, hotels, petrol stations, supermarkets, convenience stores and tobacco retailers. Watch this space.”

Drivers who opt-in are encouraged to carry their plastic licence in the initial stages.

To get a DDL, licence holders will need to create a MyServiceNSW Account at and download the Service NSW mobile app on their smartphone. The DDL will always be opt-in only.
